$p=\dfrac{5}{6}$

Work Step by Step

Using the properties of equality, the value of the variable that satisfies the given expression, $ -\dfrac{2}{3}+p=\dfrac{1}{6} ,$ is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} p=\dfrac{1}{6}+\dfrac{2}{3} \\\\ p=\dfrac{1}{6}+\dfrac{4}{6} \\\\ p=\dfrac{1+4}{6} \\\\ p=\dfrac{5}{6} .\end{array}
